Video: Find Out Which Calibers Can Blast Open Locks

Hollywood movies make breaking locks with handguns look easy. However, as the Demolition Ranch team recently found out, padlocks are a lot tougher than they look.
The locks used in this test appear to be pretty standard keyed locks. You might think that they’d be in pieces after a few handgun rounds, but you would be wrong.
The locks held up to multiple rifle rounds and even a 12 gauge slug. The only round that was able to successfully bust open a lock with its first shot was a .50 BMG from a Barrett rifle. I guess those little padlocks are tougher than you thought!
